November 21, 2012 by  

Running races on Thanksgiving Day seems to be the trend these days with Turkey Trots all across the state.

The Plymouth Rock N Run 2012 Thanksgiving Morning Turkey Trot with 1k, 5k, and 10k runs will take place in Yorba Regional Park, 7600 East La Palma Avenue Anaheim, beginning at 7:00 am.

The course will travel along La Palma Ave and the Santa Ana River alongside Yorba Regional. The 1K fun run is for kids age 10 and younger. This will be the fifth anniversary of this Turkey Trot, so all legacy runners will be presented with special medals. Winners in each age group and gender will also receive medals.

Moving closer to Christmas, Residents of La Palma can enjoy the joyous sounds of schoolchildren singing at the annual tree lighting ceremony, which will be held on Wednesday, December 5, at the Central Park Amphitheater.

The event begins at 4:30 pm with visits to see Santa and crafts until 5:30 pm, when the tree lighting ceremony begins with a community carol singalong.

The Central Park Amphitheater is located at 7821 Walker Street, La Palma. For more information call (714) 690-3350.
